Cinna-Sticks {kids in the kitchen}

Hello friends!  As you know from my previous post, we had a few snow days…When it is cold and I am cooped up inside, I tend to bake.  My boys LOVE to bake with me.  I know you are thinking…We know this already…All you post are recipes of sweets and your kids are usually in the pictures sitting on the counter.  This may be true, but I do cook other foods that can be served as a real meal, like dinner.  I promise to share some of those…one of these days! 🙂

How many of you live near a Pizza Hut?  If so, you have probably tried their cinnamon sugar bread sticks.  My boys LOVE these and would rather eat these than a slice of pizza.  I don’t blame them…they are really yummy!  I remembered seeing a recipe on Pinterest for copy-cat Pizza Hut Cinna-Sticks.  Unfortunately, when I found the picture I had pinned, it led me to an error page.  So…I made up a recipe.  Here you go…

Cinna-sticks {}


1 can refrigerated crescent rolls

spray butter (or melted butter/margarine)

cinnamon/sugar mix


Unroll crescents into two long rectangles onto a baking pan.  Spray with butter.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.  Bake at the recommended temperature on the crescent roll can until they look done.  It will not take as long as recommended on the can and you do not want to over-bake them.  After removing from oven, cut in 1 inch strips…perfect for dipping!

While cinna-sticks are in the oven, prepare a delicious dippable icing:

1 Tbsp. butter, melted

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. almond extract

1 Tbsp. milk

1 c. powdered sugar

Mix together.  If icing is too runny, add more powdered sugar.  If too thick, add more milk.  Should be a dippable consistency.  Serve in a small bowl with Cinna-sticks and Enjoy!

Note:  These are not exactly like Pizza Hut’s, but they are delicious and highly addictive!  What kid doesn’t like icing for breakfast?!

These are quick, easy, frugal and your kids will have fun helping you make them…Enjoy cooking with your kiddos!
